In which John Green teaches you about the end of World History, and the end of the world as we know it, kind of. For the last hundred years or so, it seemed that one important ingredient for running an economically successful country was a western-style democratic government. All evidence pointed to the idea that capitalist representative democracies made for the best economic outcomes. It turns out that isn't the only way to succeed. In the last 40 years or so, authoritarian capitalism as it's practiced in places like China and Singapore has been working really, really well. John is going to look at these systems and talk about why they work, and he's even going to make a few predictions about the future. Also, thanks for watching this series.

Xi Jinping's 2013 announcement of the Belt and Road Initiative took the world by surprise, but to Lyndon and Helga LaRouche, it was a victory in a forty year long fight to create a new international economic order. Bill Jones of EIR magazine tells the history of China's economic miracle responsible for lifting 600 million of its citizens out of poverty (not to mention the millions more in countries working with the BRI), and the role of Lyndon and Helga LaRouche's decades long promotion of a World Land-Bridge concept that paved the way for China's initiative. **Please note** Bill Jones' is misidentified as the EIR Asia Desk Editor.

The Opium War started as a dispute over trading rights between China and Great Britain. Regular trade between Europe and the Chinese had been ongoing for centuries. But China's trading restrictions frustrated the British who were eager to supply the Chinese people with the increasingly popular narcotic Opium. Circumventing the government's attempts to ban opium trade by smuggling and bribery, China declared the death sentence on Opium smuggling and refused to compensate British tradesmen for any losses. Furiously, the Brits sent out a fleet to demand compensation and end the Cohong trading monopoly. Fierce battles and attacks on the Chinese coast were followed.

"China's century of Humiliation" explores the fundamental differences between the Western and Chinese culture from early beginnings. The film debates how Christianity and Confucianism were translated in political thought and social systems. Next, the film investigates why the industrial revolution did not take place in China, despite its many early inventions, but in Europe. China's century of Humiliation sheds light on the first economic and military encounters between the British and Chinese Empires through the eyes of Asian and Western historians. Trade deficits, war threats and reprisals have marked the 19th century as one of the bloodiest and most shameful in Chinese history. Today, these past lessons can serve as an powerful insight for what the future might bring for China and the rest of the world. China's Century of Humiliation is unique in many ways. As the only documentary to attempt a comparative study of the Chinese and Western history the film also features a special visual style.For illustration the film uses shots from the People's Republic of China, Taiwan, Europe and the US. but also a large number of computer generated animations that bring history to life. Using authentic historical documents the director has created motion and dynamism that engages the audience. The film also benefits from the artistically generated landscapes of ancient China and an imaginative combination of maps and architecture that serve at times as metaphors of the events depicted in the film.

It is now widely realized that China's sustainable economic growth rate is slowing and its unprecedentedly high investment ratio is unsustainable. It is less well recognized that its investment ratio implies a growth rate in the capital stock (perhaps 12% or more) that is hugely higher than the current speed limit on Chinese economic growth (perhaps 7% or less). To adjust the former down to the latter obviously risks a powerful accelerator multiplier contraction. So the issue at hand is whether China will bite the bullet now and take the pain or defer doing so to a later date. As it is a command economy and its overall debt to GDP ratio is still well below levels that have proved to be ceilings in other economies, it could well defer. But if the country moves too quickly toward Western style financial liberalization, this might well complicate the re-balancing process. It has becoming increasingly clear that debt growth has been so great in recent years the Chinese authorities will now try restraint/reform/re-balancing. Because the Chinese growth disequilibrium is now so wide, and the debt dependence of its fixed investment so great, these policies may well inflict too much pain on too many vested interests. In time a "stop" phase of a "stop go" policy will once again give way to a go phase led by debt dependent state-sponsored investment. But we will first get that "stop" phase involving restraint/reform/rebalancing. This panel examines a range of views on what everyone regards as a critical issue for the global economy. Speakers: • He Fan, Deputy Director, Institute of World Economics & Politics, Chinese Academy of Social Sciences • Wang Hui, Department of Chinese Language and Literature, Tsinghua University • Jehoon Park, Professor, School of Northeast Asian Studies, University of Incheon • Hongying Wang, Senior Fellow, Centre for International Governance Innovation • David Wu, Beijing Senior Partner, PricewaterhouseCoopers Moderated by Chrystia Freeland, Member of Parliament, Toronto Centre
China has invested billions of dollars into the continent of Africa to build massive infrastructure projects in African countries. Much of this infrastructure is part of China’s Belt and Road Initiative, an estimated 1 trillion dollar plan to connect the country to trade routes all over the world. » Subscribe to NowThis World: http://go.nowth.is/World_Subscribe » Watch the Previous Episode: https://go.nowth.is/2LhNmtv While China’s Belt and Road Initiative was only proposed in 2013, the country’s first infrastructure project on the African continent was built decades ago. The TazaHra railway, completed in 1976, was built to connect copper mines in Zambia to Dar EH Salaam, Tanzania’s former capital. The TazHara railway was the first infrastructure project built on a pan-African scale. China’s Belt and Road projects will be designed to create new trade routes within and between African countries. In 2017, a Chinese firm opened a railway network in Kenya, connecting its capital Nairobi to the port city of Mombasa. There are already plans to extend this network into South Sudan, Uganda, Rwanda and Burundi. Many observers worry that African countries won’t be able to pay back these debts, placing them in what’s been called a quote “debt trap.” But others think that as African countries rise economically, they could actually have the upper hand by the time they negotiate payments back to China. This explains why African leaders have been so confident in calling Chinese investment a “win-win.” But is China’s investment in the continent actually a “win-win” as some African and Chinese leaders have said? OR is it just a new form of colonialism on a continent that’s experienced so much of it? In this episode, we’re examining China’s Belt and Road Initiative and what it might mean for Africa.

Although Hong Kong still has nearly 30 years of semi-autonomy left, China has started tightening its grip, and many believe it is chipping away at Hong Kong’s freedoms.

Follow us on TWITTER: http://twitter.com/cnforbiddennews Like us on FACEBOOK: http://www.facebook.com/chinaforbiddennews U.S. Ambassador to China, Gary Locke, flew to the Davos Economic Forum in Dalian in Economy Class. A CCTV reporter asked him if he is been so frugal as to remind Americans that they owe China money? Locke responded that this is the American standard. Chinese netizens bombarded the CCTV reporter saying, "Why don't you dare remind Chinese officials that they owe Chinese people money?" During the Summer Davos Economic Forum held in Dalian on September 14, the U.S. Ambassador to China continued his exemplary style by flying Economy Class. At the forum, CCTV economic channel host Rui Chenggang asked Locke, "Mr. Ambassador, I heard you flew here in Economy Class, is this to remind the U.S. that it owes China money?" Locke responded that the U.S. government will continue to reduce expenditure to restore people's trust in the government, and taking the Economy Class is to prove this point. During the media round table afterward, Locke expressed that no matter if it is the U.S. Ambassador or embassy officials, including people in the president's cabinet, the common standard is to take Economy Class. Locke expressed that he is a very easygoing person, which represents the true American way. He hoped that his openness can improve mutual understanding between the American and Chinese people, eliminate some barriers and misunderstandings, despite the economical, political and culture differences. Rui Chenggang said on her micro-blog later that Locke takes every opportunity to promote American values. Scholar at Chinese Art Institute, Wu Zuolai, expressed how American officials shows their dutiful and friendly spirit through their daily actions; this is the natural expression of American values. Wu Zuolai: "Gold shines no matter where it is. If you say gold shines because it's doing it on purpose, then you can believe whatever you want. He simply has these qualities. His actions follow the American values. He himself is a kind of advertisement. Mao Zedong once said, 'Every American soldier in China is a promotion of democracy and freedom.'" Chinese poet and culture commentator Ye Kuangzheng pointed out that Chinese citizens really welcome Locke's frugal and dutiful actions. Only officials are ridiculing, or people like Rui Chenggang who represent those in power. Ye Kuangzheng: "Hosts like Rui Chenggang have political mindsets, or spokesperson mindsets for those in power. They are loudspeakers that can't express personal viewpoints. They only represent those in power." At the G20 Summit last year, Rui Chenggang claimed to "represent Asia," and questioned U.S. President Obama. This time he "represented China," and attempted to ask challenging questions. However, netizens didn't appear to fancy this, pointing out this CCTV host's ignorance. Li Chengpeng (writer): "I hope Rui Chenggang asks Chinese officials, 'You travel in First Class, is this to remind yourself how much you have taken from the (Chinese) people?'" Another netizen compared Rui Chenggang to the foolish and cynical patriotic youths: "Full of pride when you brag about anti-Americanism, but complete cowards when talking about things in front of you. You know that even if you curse at the U.S. all day, nothing will happen to you. You can give Locke and Obama a hard time, and there will be no retaliation on their part, but if you do the same to someone next to you, you might lose your job." Other netizens mock the Chinese regime, "Americans want to study Leifeng, you should let them. You are pretty good at learning from Song Dynasty officials, who destroyed the country."

For all appearances, China has emerged unscathed from the global economic crisis, in stark contrast to its biggest debtor, America. China's admirers point to its ability to mobilize state resources, quick decision-making and business-friendly environment as reasons for its economic ascendency. But can its brand of state-directed capitalism overcome rampant corruption and the threat of growing inequality, or will the American model of innovation and free markets prevail?

Rich, autocratic China is too powerful an adversary for any democracy In this new cold war, the US and other democracies that abide by fair and open rules of engagement cannot stop China claiming its place as the world’s No 1 superpower. Where will that leave the rest of the world? Is the United States trying to obstruct China's rise or is it rising to China’s challenge to become the world’s top superpower? If somebody wants to replace you as No 1, it's only natural to fight back whichever way you can. China has every right to feel its time has come to be top dog now that no other country except the US can rival it economically and militarily. That thinking, in fact, underpins President Xi Jinping’s vision for his country, giving birth to his so-called “Chinese dream”. He fleshed out that vision with: the “Belt and Road Initiative”, designed for all roads to lead to China; “Made in China 2025”, which uses state subsidies for mainland companies to dominate global artificial intelligence; the “Greater Bay Area”, to knock Silicon Valley off its perch; and, militarised man-made islands in the South China Sea, which Beijing claims belongs to it. But just because China feels it has acquired the right to use even tenacious means to the superpower crown doesn’t mean the US must accede to China’s ambition. US President Donald Trump has shown he is more than willing to use equally tenacious means to defend his country’s long-held status as the dominant power. He has unleashed a trade war, along with a pushback against the Belt and Road Initiative, efforts to discredit mainland telecom giant Huawei as a Beijing spy, a global campaign to prevent China from dictating 5G rules, and so-called freedom of navigation by US warplanes and warships in the South China Sea. Whether you see this as the US trying to contain China or China confronting the US by hook or by crook to become top dog, this clash of the titans – which pitches Chinese autocracy against American democracy – will have far-reaching global consequences. I have said before this is a new cold war. Others prefer less alarming language. Either way, if China triumphs, what will it be like living in a world with an authoritarian state as the dominant superpower? How will China react if the US successfully thwarts its ambition to lead the world? This new rivalry between two 21st-century powers for global dominance is nothing like the cold war that pitched a wealthy and democratic US-led West against the Soviet Union, which had a crumbling economy before its demise. Even people within the Soviet bloc yearned for the freedom and prosperity of the West. But today’s China is not only rapidly producing billionaires, its economy is forecast to overtake that of the US in coming years. Its people are proudly patriotic, can travel freely, are big spenders abroad, and there is little open support for Western-style democracy. Xi had actually suggested that developing countries yearning for prosperity should consider the Chinese model. Democracy was the West’s best weapon during the cold war with the Soviet Union, uniting it against a common enemy. But the shared value of democracy is no longer enough to bind today’s West against an authoritarian but economically powerful China, which knows how to use its wealth and vast market to play Western nations against each other. Even Trump has had limited success in forcing allies to boycott Huawei and the belt and road plan. Huawei, which is required by Chinese law to share information with the government, has lulled some US allies into believing it will never do that. It’s even legally challenging the Trump administration’s ban against its products. American democracy allows that. China bans foreign companies from its network infrastructure, too, on security grounds but any US attempt to sue in a Chinese court would go nowhere. Huawei’s chief financial officer Meng Wanzhou used Canadian democracy to sue the government for wrongful arrest. The two Canadians China arrested aren’t even allowed lawyers. Democracy allows China to open Confucius Institutes in US colleges to advance its agenda. No way would China allow US institutes in Chinese universities to promote democracy. Rather than democracy being a weapon in the new cold war, it is in many ways its own worst enemy. Thank you for watching.

For some time now, the establishment of the World Bank and IMF has had a Chinese counterpart: AIIB, which China intends to use to finance a huge infrastructure project to connect Asia and Europa, a New Silk Route. This new international financial institution forces Europe to take a side. The UK decided, against the urgent advice from the United States, to become a member, and also the Netherlands has joined the Chinese initiative. According to China watcher Martin Jacques, this is the beginning of a new Chinese world order. Original Title: Chinese Wereldorde While Europe is being tested by a tragic economic crisis, terrorist attacks and refugees at the gates, the founding meeting of the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank and the New Development Bank has been quite unnoticed. These are two new multilateral financial institutions that challenge the current order of the World Bank and the IMF. Both are led by China and are set up to bring the world-dominated World Bank and IMF down. After the British became members of the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank, due to economic opportunities, the Netherlands, France and Germany also followed. The importance of this, initially, British shift of foreign policy is difficult to underestimate. The United States feels this is a direct threat to their sphere of influence. "The biggest diplomatic battle since the Second World War between the US and its main ally," said journalist and China expert Martin Jacques about the surprising British step. And symptomatic of a new world order. But how does the Chinese influence differ from the American influence? Will Europe become a pawn in the battle between the two influence spheres?

In which John Green teaches you about what westerners call the middle ages and the lives of the aristocracy...in Japan. The Heian period in Japan lasted from 794CE to 1185CE, and it was an interesting time in Japan. Rather than being known for a thriving economy, or particularly interesting politics, the most important things to come out of the Heian period were largely cultural. There was a flourishing of art and literature in the period, and a lot of that culture was created by women. The Tale of Genji by Murasaki Shikibu was the classic piece of literature of the day, and it gave a detailed look into the way the Aristocrats of the Heian period lived. While this doesn't give a lot of insight into the lives of daily people, it can be very valuable, and the idea of approaching history from a cultural perspective is a refreshing change from the usual military or political history that survives from so many eras.

Watch more films about China: https://rtd.rt.com/tags/china/ - Wushu is a Chinese martial art comprised of “external” and “internal” styles. - Wudang Wushu is the oldest of the “internal” styles, closely connected to Daoism - An ancient legend describes how animal movements inspired its origin - While Wudang Wushu is practiced around the world today, its original, authentic form is best preserved by the Daoist monks of the Wudang Mountains Chinese martial arts, known as wushu, combine hundreds of different styles that belong to one of two categories. The so-called “external” styles focus on improving muscle and honing battle skills, as famously practiced by Shaolin monks for example. “Internal” styles concentrate on manipulating “qi” or life energy, which is also the basis for most Chinese medicine. In the misty Wudang Mountains, followers of Wushu’s legendary founder, Daoist monk, Zhang Sanfeng, practice the oldest of the “internal” Wushu styles - Taijiquan or Wudang Wushu. Legend has it that Zhang Sanfeng was inspired by watching a fight between a sparrow and a snake. The style he created reflects the creatures’ fluid and precise movements. It’s said to build inner strength while practitioners remain calm and composed. In combat, the emphasis is on avoiding attacks and using the enemy’s own strength against them. Many believe that practicing Wudang Wushu also improves health, Zhang Sanfeng is said to have lived to his 300th birthday. Wudang Wushu is still closely connected to Daoism but today, it is exported around the world in a simplified form without a specific religious and philosophical context. Its authentic form is preserved by the monks of the Wudang Mountains. For centuries they have passed the art on from teacher to student, saving it for future generations. Today they don’t just share the skill with trainee monks but anybody else willing to commit to using this ancient martial art to perfect themselves in body and spirit.

China's reform era is ending. Core factors that characterized it-political stability, ideological openness, and rapid economic growth-are unraveling. Since the 1990s, Beijing's leaders have firmly rejected any fundamental reform of their authoritarian one-party political system, even as a decades-long boom has reshaped China's economy and society. On the surface, their efforts have been a success. Political turmoil has toppled former Communist East bloc regimes, internal unrest overtaken Middle East nations, and populist movements risen to challenge established Western democracies. China, in contrast, has appeared a relative haven of stability and growth. But as Carl Minzner shows, a closer look at China's reform era reveals a different truth. Economic cleavages have widened; ideological polarization deepened. And China’s leaders are now progressively cannibalizing institutional norms and practices that have formed the bedrock of the regime’s stability since 1978. Technocratic rule is giving way to black-box purges; collective governance sliding back towards single-man rule. The post-1978 era of "reform and opening up" is ending. China is closing down. Uncertainty hangs in the air as a new future slouches towards Beijing to be born. End of an Era explains how China arrived at this dangerous turning point, and outlines the potential outcomes that could result. About the Author Carl Minzner is Professor of Law at Fordham University, and author of End of an Era (Oxford University Press, 2018) . He has written extensively on Chinese law and governance in both academic journals and the popular press, including op-eds appearing in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Los Angeles Times, and Christian Science Monitor. Prior to joining Fordham, he was an Associate Professor of Law at Washington University in St. Louis. In addition, he has served as Senior Counsel for the Congressional-Executive Commission on China, International Affairs Fellow for the Council on Foreign Relations, and Yale-China Legal Education Fellow at the Xibei Institute of Politics and Law in Xi'an, China.
